  • Patent number: 11517384
    Abstract: A surgical system includes a surgical assist robot including a robot main body and a slave controller, and a console. The robot main body has an entry guide, an entry guide support device, and at least one manipulator having an end effector provided at a distal end. The entry guide includes an inner cylinder, an outer cylinder into which the inner cylinder is inserted in an insertion axial direction, and a guide advancing device that displaces the inner cylinder in the insertion axial direction with respect to the outer cylinder. While a position and a posture of the end effector that has advanced from the entry guide are maintained, the inner cylinder is caused to advance toward the end effector within a predetermined movable range along the insertion axial direction with respect to the outer cylinder.

  • Patent number: 11492480
    Abstract: The invention provides a fluoroelastomer composition that can be crosslinked at an industrially sufficient rate without the use of a graphene having specific surface properties and can provide a fluoroelastomer molded article having higher tensile strength and better abrasion resistance than conventional fluoroelastomer molded articles even though having a similar tensile modulus to conventional fluoroelastomer molded articles. The fluoroelastomer composition contains a fluoroelastomer that contains a crosslinkable group-containing monomer unit and an elongated sheet-shaped graphene. The graphene exhibits a ratio (L/W) of a maximum length (L) and a width (W) of 2 to 105, and the graphene exhibits a ratio (L/T) of the maximum length (L) and a thickness (T) of 1×101 to 1×107.

  • Patent number: 11467514
    Abstract: An apparatus includes an image bearing member, a developer container having a replenishment port, a developer bearing member, a detection portion configured to output remainder amount information corresponding to the amount of developer accommodated in the developer container, a notification portion capable of notifying a first state, and a second state, and a control portion. The maximum amount of the developer that the developer container is capable of accommodating is larger than a value obtained by adding the amount of the developer accommodated in a replenishment container containing the developer for replenishment to the first amount, and wherein notification of the second state corresponds to notification of a case where the amount of the developer remaining in the developer container is larger than a case where the amount of the developer remaining in the developer container is the smallest.

  • Patent number: 11393497
    Abstract: A head gimbal assembly (HGA) for a hard disk drive includes a primary dimple having a secondary structure protruding from the primary dimple, where a flexure is movably coupled with a load beam via the primary dimple, and where the secondary structure is configured to restrict the point of contact between the load beam and the flexure. Such an arrangement avoids any shift in the axis of rotation of the flexure, and the attached slider, due to any undesirable protrusion from the primary dimple which may arise in the manufacturing process. Examples of secondary structures include a micro-dimple, a ridge, and an embedded mass of material.
